"No matter where you run, no matter where you hide, you'll never escape from... Jai Courtney, the homeless man's Channing Tatum [who] turned Kyle Reese into a blank-faced moron where charisma goes to die. [...] Stop trying to make Jai Courtney happen, it's not gonna happen."
"Jai Courtney... is good! Yes. You read that right. Jai Courtney, the handsome actor who seems to perpetually be getting blamed for the less-than-good tentpoles he stars in, is quite good in this movie. As the crass Aussie Captain Boomerang, he is genuinely funny, providing some of the much-needed humor the trailers promised (but which the film did not deliver enough of)."
— Aaron Couch, about Suicide Squad in The Hollywood Reporter, 5 August 2016
"So gear up for the film we all thougt would put the DC Extended Universe back on track, [...] with great characters by Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and... Jai Courtney of all people... that get cancelled out by this hula-hooping witch and this manorexic juggalo. But hey, at least Wonder Woman looks pretty good... right?"
